The Green School

We seek to address challenges facing Lagos-dwellers through the development of a sustainable compound.

Working with tenants in the compound’s building, the Amayo family, and community members in the neighbourhood of Ikeja, the project plans to develop a rainwater harvesting system to produce potable water and a green roof that will provide open space and the opportunity to cultivate food; and retrofit the building with solar panels to provide reliable electricity and replace inefficient energy-based generator use.

It will eventually seek to address the sewage problem with compound-scale solutions such as compost toilets and neighbourhood-scale solutions such as filtering plants and energy production from biowaste
